The new landlord really turned this place around and made it great. He is very professional, handles maintenance requests in a timely manner, and is honest and does not lie or scam you like the previous one. The neighbors (most of them) are very cold and standoffish. They throw trash around a lot which gets annoying to frequently have to clean up, and some of them are prone to egging ( throwing uncooked eggs at things), but I am here for a place to live not to socialize. There is no air conditioning so plan on spending about $1,000 to buy one big one or a few small ones or you will get heatstroke in the summer. They advertise it as "energy efficient" but the windows and sliding doors are not included in that apparently so plan on buying thick curtains or having it unbearably hot or cold within around ten minutes of having the heat or air turned off. There doesn't seem to be insulation and the walls are prone to crumbling very easily so even hanging things like photos with thumb tacks can be tricky. The apartments are huge, the grounds are kept up well, everything is well lit and requires a key so your things are fairly safe, there is surveillance so it ads a layer of security. You aren't allowed to have grills so no barbecuing. There is a small playground for kids and a "dog park" where the old playground used to be. The dog park is a small fenced area and while they do provide waste bags the area is covered in gravelly sand not grass so I imagine it is hard to get your pets to do their business. overall as long as you are willing to compensate for the poor way the building was built. it is a great place to live. I love living here and have for about three years.
